draft report

  The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
  codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.
  
- < narrative >
+ There are presently 52 podlings incubating. During the month of November,
+ podlings executed 11 distinct releases. We added 17 new IPMC members and 
+ had 2
+ IPMC members retire.
+ 
+ Several podlings are heading towards graduation. We have also have several 
+ new podlings with IotDB, Sharding Sphere, BRPC and Iceburg join our ranks 
+ and two podlings Quickstep and ODF toolkit retire. ODF toolkit had spent 7 
+ years in the incubator. Airflow look set to graduate and will be the 200th 
+ active Apache project if no other TLP projects retire. BatchEE still seems 
+ stuck in performing the last graduation steps.
+ 
+ Superset is slowly addressing its issues, but has still not made an Apache 
+ release and has continued to make unofficial releases. A meeting has been 
+ set up to try and sort out the issues as discussing them on the mailing 
+ list doesn't seem to be working.
+ 
+ There were 2 IP clearances.
+ 
+ A number of podlings, despite prompting, failed to report and will be asked 
+ to report next month.
+ 
+ The mentor situation has improved but we still have a number of podlings 
+ (19) with less than 3 mentors.
+ 
+ An email was sent to the members list, to see if we can get more IPMC 
+ members and several people stepped forward.
+ 
+ We also had a discussion about lowering the bar for IPMC members and seeing 
+ how they potential candidates can be more easily recognised. While unusual
+ at the  ASF, we've asked people to self identify, they will still be voted on
+ by the IPMC, and several have come forward and have been voted in. Several had 
+ more than enough merit and had gone unnoticed or looked over by the IPMC 
+ and in a couple of cases were extremely obvious candidates.
+ 
+ As a result of both of these we have 17 new IPMC members and several new 
+ mentors.
+ 
+ One podling had to be reminded that a NOTICE needs to be sent to the IPMC 
+ for any new PPMC members.
+ 
+ Moderators of the incubator mailing list had gone missing and 3 new 
+ moderators have been added. Some IPMC members had previously missed being 
+ signed up the private email list as a result of this.
+ 
+ A large number (100+) of IPMC members are not signed up to the private mail 
+ list, each was sent emails asking them to sign up. A couple asked to be 
+ removed from IPMC but the majority of those contacted have not signed up. 
+ There's probably not much more that can be done about this.
+ 
+ Podlings rosters are now (with a few exceptions) mostly up-to-date.
+ 
+ The default podling bylaws/guidelines were posted to the board list, some 
+ minor changes were made and have been accepted. Graduating podlings will be 
+ pointed to these guidelines rather than encouraged to write their own.
